The Professional/Scholarly Publishing (PSP) Division of the Association of American Publishers (AAP) Committee for Digital Innovation (CDI) is once again offering a fall seminar series, this time on Metrics, New Metrics and Their Significance.

The next part of the series is scheduled for October 19, 2016 at 12:00-1:30 p.m. The title of this webinar is “Altmetrics.” This session will explore the alternative metric systems that developed in response to the rise and influence of social media. Altmetrics utilize the logic of web 2.0 to supplement the already existing impact measurements and attempt to account for the impacts of digital research through social media and online platforms, such as Twitter, blogs, and other web based publishing.

The next and final date for the series is Wednesday, November 16, 2016. Each 90-minute session will focus on an important current issue in electronic publishing. It will offer a 45-minute presentation followed by a 45-minute Q&A with discussion.  All sessions will run from 12:00 – 1:30 PM and a light lunch will be provided for those attending in person.

You can sign up for the whole series (at a discounted rate) or for an individual session. There is a significant discount for AAP members.
